I Was Telling Him About YouWords & Music by Bill Charlap & Don George
Recorded by Nancy Wilson, 1973
DM7 E7 C#7 F#m My arms were around him, my eyes were aglow, D9 E7-9 C#m7-5 F#7 The moment was tender, the music was low; D9 Bm7-5 E7/6 Fdim AM7 C#7 F#7 But while we were danc - ing, I think you should know D9 Bm7-5 Fdim E7/6 I was telling him a - bout you. DM7 E7 C#7 F#m He kept coming closer, the magic was there; D9 E7-9 C#m7-5 F#7 He wore an expression that made people stare. D9 Bm7-5 E7/6 Fdim AM7 C#7 F#7 It looked so romantic, but Darling, I swear, D9 Bm7-5 Fdim E7 I was telling him about you. Bridge: Cdim Dm7 G CM7 Am7 When you passed by, and caught my eye, Dm7 Fdim E7-9 CM7 You didn't say a word; Em7 B7 Emsus4 B+ You turned about and walked right out, D9 Bm7-5 E7 D9 E7 And the silence was the loudest I've ev - er heard. DM7 E7 C#7 F#m Come back to me, Darling, I must make you see D9 E7-9 C#m7-5 F#7 That things aren't always what they seem to be. D9 Bm7-5 Fdim AM7 C#7 F#7 The boy in my arms meant nothing to me -- D9 Bm7-5 E7 A I was telling him about you.
